For many homeowners the UPVC double glazed door handle seems more of mystery and a challenge to change when there is fault or when it wears out.

Moving parts in all things run the risk of wearing out due to wear and tear, friction and the stresses and strains placed upon them over time. In the world of double glazing areas of wear and tear are all those parts other the frames and in the case of double glazed doors the handles tend to take a lot of the stress.

The UPVC material of many double glazing door and window frames, the knowledge that multi point locking mechanisms are in some windows and doors and perceptions that the double glazing parts are exclusive to the installers are reasons why many home owners lack confidence in changing faulty double glazed door handles and locks.

For plain wooden doors internal or external most home owners perceive a degree of flexibility, have greater confidence in their own ability to choose and install the right new handle, and believe that door handles for plain wooden doors are easier to find.

James Gumersell of online door handle and door knob retail specialist attempts to shed light on this phenomenon:

“Yes it would be true to say that many customers seem to be a little less confident about what type of handles they need when replacing UPVC door handles. They’re also likely to have more questions and often there is a perception that the UPVC door handle is going to cost much more than a standard handle”.

James is pleased to say that there is good news for customers who find themselves in this situation.

“We stock a range of UPVC door handles that are designed to fit all popular PVC door locks. They’re actually not difficult to change and fit and we provide expert telephone advice for all of our products. We provide detailed dimensions for each UPVC door handle on our website and as long as you make sure that you measure the distance from the centre of handle spindle to the centre of the circular cylinder lock plus the height and width of the backplate we can make sure you get the right one” says James.

“The prices depend on the type of handles needed for your particular door but the range we offer starts at around £20 with the most expensive being about £60. For most of the range they’re not that much more than expensive than quality standard door handles and our whole range is very reasonably priced compared to other retailers out there – plus we offer very fast delivery” says James.
